One of my favourite resorts is The Tamara in Kabbinkad estate in Coorg. The main reason why I love this place is that this is where you can come up close with the mighty Western Ghats and its biodiversity. Being an avid birder I have never ceased to admire the wonderful avian species found here. The best part of this resort is that you will see birds all the time, all round the year – it’s just that you probably will see different birds. And that is where the charm of this place lies. You never know what avian surprises are in store.
